The past few weeks have been pretty exciting for Fox Chapel's football team. The Foxes won three of their last four games, including last week's playoff-clinching 21-0 shutout against Butler.
That victory earned Fox Chapel (4-4, 3-4) fifth place in the Northern Eight Conference as well as the program's first postseason berth since 2011. The Foxes grabbed their playoff spot thanks to conference wins against Seneca Valley, Shaler and Butler. Last week, they outgained Butler in total yardage, 351-138.
Carrington Vaughn, a senior running back, helped the Foxes by rushing for 170 yards and a touchdown against the Golden Tornado. Quarterback Billy Urso added a score by throwing a touchdown pass to Thomas Smith and finished the game completing 9 of 20 passes for 128 yards.
Urso, a senior, has been one of the top quarterbacks in the WPIAL all season. Through eight games, Urso has completed 94 of 180 attempts for 1,293 yards and nine touchdowns. As a junior, Urso threw for 1,651 yards and 16 touchdowns.
